Today’s Six on Saturday comes again from the mountains in northern Spain where the dahlias seems to grow abundantly. I don’t know what they are called but here are six wonderful dahlias as my flowers in the Picos de Europa – just beautiful!
My Six on Saturday comes to you from sunny Spain, the Picos de Europa to be more specific, where I am easing off after a difficult year. The Propagator will, I hope, allow such a breach of ‘backyard’ information! So, this is gardening in the Picos de Europa.
It is the end of August and there is a hint of ‘year-end’ in the garden. It feels slightly tired, as though we are in the last fling before settling down to sleep. On the whole I have been pleased with progress this year, but I can also see where some changes are needed next…
Well, this week it is the plums! In the past fortnight the fruit has ripened and the tree is heavily laden with ripe fruit which is also being enjoyed by the wasps and bees, and some creepie crawlies. And other than that the garden is just being ‘garden’. 1.The Victoria Plum tree – I had several…
The Propagator has produced another list of plants, this time from Edinburgh. I hope he enjoys my City Garden list!
There has been some rain, and some sunshine, and The Fortnight Garden is looking ok, although perhaps a little weary? Anyway, I have some new sights to share with The Propagator this week!
It has been a hard-thinking day with the camera so I am just sitting in the garden, ruminating on what needs to be done in the autumn/spring. No words – just the pictures.
What a resourceful man The Propagator is! Somehow we see new plants in his garden every week! By comparison I offer some further growth this week, only three new plants, and some jam.
I am in The Fortnight Garden again to go to a concert over the weekend and that also means baking, and because baking takes gardening time the cakes are going to be included in ‘Six on Saturday’!
The City Garden is starting to look very abundant, even messy in places, leading me to think about changes that will be needed in the autumn and spring, but in the meantime I am pleased with several ideas, and particularly these ‘Six on Saturday’!
